Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most influential books of the twentieth century, Cybernetics has been acclaimed one of the "seminal books...comparable in ultimate importance to...Galileo or Malthus or Rousseau or Mill" (John R. Pratt, The New York Times). Cybernetics was judged by twenty-seven historians, economists, educators, and philosophers to be one of those books published during the "past four decades," which "most significantly altered the direction of our society...which may have a substantial impact on public thought and action in the years ahead" (Saturday Review).

Review:

"It appers impossible for anyone seriously interested in our civilization to ignore this book. It is a ?must? book for those in every branch of science...in addition, economists, politicians, statesmen, and businessmen cannot afford to overlook cybernetics and its tremendous, even terrifying implications.

"It is a beautifully written book, lucid, direct, and despite its complexity, as readable by the layman as the trained scientist." John B. Thurston, The Saturday Review of Literature

Review:

"Its scope and implications are breathtaking, and leaves the reviewer with the conviction that it is a major contribution to contemporary thought." Russell L. Ackoff, Philosophy of Science

Review:

"...one of the most provocative works in recent scientific history." P. J. Bhat, Electro-Technology

Review:

"...it may be necessary to return to it again and again to appreciate its contents in full....In the words of another reviewer of the first edition, it is 'a book to own, to read, and re-read.' This is no less true now than when it was first published." Marconi Review

Review:

"...we can see this book as one of the classics, which everyone interested in the state of science should read. Wiener's book will fascinate the reader from the first introduction to the last chapter." F.L.H.M. Stumpers, IRE Transactions on Information Theory

Synopsis:

A scientific explanation of the relationship between animal thought processes and learning devices.
